The Role

The Organisation

The Community Farm is a social enterprise and a community supported agriculture project dedicated to environmental sustainability and community involvement. We grow organic vegetables and fruit on around 15 acres. We sell our produce, and that of other (primarily local) organic growers, to the local community, mostly through an organic box delivery scheme. Our profits are used to enable people to reconnect with the land and discover where their food comes from through community engagement projects.

We’re a close, friendly team. Our values include honesty, respect for the living earth, fairness, openness and kindness.

The Community Farm strives to be an inclusive employer and organisation.  Our approach to hiring is changing as we continue to talk and learn about intersectionality, privilege and discrimination, and we aspire to support a greater diversity of people in our organisation as this process continues. It is part of our values to ensure that the environment we create at The Farm is welcoming, supportive and inclusive; this is something we have always strived to uphold, and something that we are continuously seeking to improve upon.
